30 Days of Denim- Day 15

30 Days of Denim
Here is today's outfit:

Shirt:  Gap (bought in Japan)
Tank Top:  New York & Company
Pants:  (bought in Japan at a resale shop)
Jewelry:  Lia Sophia
Sandals:  Seiyu (bought in Japan)

Today I took the day off and accompanied Jude and his classmates on a field trip to a science museum and planetarium.  By 2 PM, I was exhausted!  All those little shits wore my ass out!  

I don't understand how certain kids can act so badly while their parents sit back and don't do anything to correct said bad behavior.  Why are certain parents so afraid to discipline their kids?  I just don't get it.  

Today, while on the field trip, I witnessed a first grader biting his mother after she threatened him.  I was appalled!  I can't even imagine my kid trying to bite me.  That would never, ever happen!  Never!  Happen! 

My kid knows how to behave and how to follow rules because I've taught him.  I've stayed home with him and showed him what appropriate behavior is.  He knows exactly what will happen to him if he fails to behave appropriately.  He knows the wrath of his midget, Mexican momma!

I just don't get it.  How do certain parents not know how to discipline their kids?  How have they allowed their kids' behavior to get so out of control?!

All I know it that all my hard work has paid off, because my kid is so freaking amazing!  He is, by far, the best behaved kid in his class, and he's a joy to be around.  No, seriously!   I like hanging out with my kid. 

If you know him, you know just how cool he is!

Echo... ditto... What she said. As a parent and an educator, I agree 100%. Kids are not held accountable for their actions, parents make idle threats with zero follow-through and then wonder where they went wrong. Sad, sad, sad. If I could do anything, it would be to teach a "Parenting 101" course. Parents are often ill-equipped and overwhelmed for the task of raising children. I would love to educate, encourage, and connect them with the resources needed to succeed in parenting... for them, for their children, and for society.
OK, I'm stepping off my soap-box now. G'night!

Amen, sista! As a parent, I feel your #1 job is to give your child the tools to become a successful adult. I don't understand why parents feel like they can quit THEIR job and put it on educators or daycare workers.

If you don't want to spend the time to raise a good kid, don't have any! Simple as that!

Sorry, but I hate it when kids act like wild animals! It makes me crazy and I just want to slap the parents!
